What’s going on behind the scenes?
Benign and malignant (cancerous) growths sometimes affect the sinuses. This is a rare cause of sinonasal problems. Exposures to wood dust, nickel dust, mustard gas, and certain chemicals can increase the chances of developing a cancerous sinus growth. Those working in carpentry and textile making are at particular risk.
